Using my SG book I identified this Queensland 6d.

I don't think it is 1860 or 61.
but looking forward in the catalogue just confuses me.
No line drawn through design.
The variations are complicated!

re: Australian Queensland 6d

There are at least 8 different catalogue numbers for this type, with different perforations, shades and watermarks . The only thing that is certain, is that it is not Sc.#3 (or Michel #3), since it is perforated. I do not think that it is one of the 1860/1861 types either as it is not deep green, but rather yellowish green.
I suppose the first thing to do is check the perforation and then try to find out what the watermark is.

re: Australian Queensland 6d

Unfortunately I don't really know what I'm looking for.
I have a small UV light I payed 99p for on eBay, shows me nothing definite.

Another New Zealand stamp
With only ONE entry, is this a sg194 1/2d black.(1.4.95)
I don't think it has been posted ? VERY light if it has, some perforations look still connected!
Thanks.

re: Australian Queensland 6d

The green 6d Queenslander, the design is known as a Chalon (from an earlier painting of the young Queen Victoria by Alfred Edward Chalon); the stamp is either an 1863 or 1865 issue.

The difference -

1. 1863 - SG 26. perforation: 12 (rough). No watermark. Colour: dull yellow green. Paper type: Thick toned paper.

2. 1865 (Specimen) - SG 47. Perforation 13. Watermark 3. Colour: light yellow green. Paper type: Thick toned paper.

The watermark seen at the back of the 1865 stamp.


The poor choice of paper and even poorer perforating was common during this era in the new self-governing colony of Queensland.

By your stamps colour it seems to be 1865.
